Re: Budget Sweet Spot... Casting Reels

I chose the 250 as a max. Reason being is you can get some high end gear at used prices very cheap. Guy has a used Met MGL JDM reel for sale here at 275. Thats a 420 dollar reel retail. You can't beat that price. I found a used Met MG7 on the forums a few months ago for 150 shipped. Close to 4 bills...

Re: Curado K or Chronarch G?

I'm starting to think I am going to pass on the Chronarch MGL, might try my first Shimano as a Curado K and put it on a heavier duty casting combo. I really wanted a finesse casting reel different than my normal brand, but I just see so many posts of people returning the ChronMGL or having negative...

Re: Curado K or Chronarch G?

Had a Chronarch MGL and returned it. The Curado K I got recently and I like it much better. Used a little today and compared it to the 70 and it can do everything the 70 does, but feels so much more smooth and refined. As stated previously, feels like a tank. A buttery, powerful tank! Nice! That's ...

Re: St. Croix Avid X v's G. Loomis E6X

Thanks for all the help guys. I forgot to update the thread. I returned the G. Loomis E6X. No matter how hard I wrenched the reel seat down, the reel would still flex in the seat. Tried shims and still the same. BP happened to have one regular Avid full grip in the store. It was sitting in the back ...

Re: Curado K or Chronarch G?

The exception so far is the Curado K. I don't foresee getting rid of it anytime soon. This is how I'm leaning as well...I have the rod (expride 6'8MH), but no reel yet since I can't find the K anywhere in stock! How'd you get yours? I got mine from BBC (Bass Boat Central) forums in the classifieds ...

Re: Curado K or Chronarch G?

I have no experience with the Chronarch G, but I have had some time with the Chronarch MGL. Wasn't a huge fan of it. Great quality and very smooth, but I didn't like how noisy the reel was on the cast. To my understanding, the G is very close to the same reel with a different spool and some minor ch...

Re: Where are the shimanos?

Rockchalk knocking it out of the park. 8-) Nice combos. Interested in your opinion of the Curado K and how it holds up to your D series reels. It palms close to the way I feel the D's do. Feels very good in the hand. I'm considering using it for Frogging at Guntersville mid October to see how it ho...

Re: New Dobyns Colt series

I can't imagine a rod in that price range would give me the sensitivity I want being I have tried the Fury, Sierra and Savvy with the same opinion, but if they made the 7 footer in a 5 power (Non CB model), it would make for a good frog rod. Same goes for the 705 CB. Would make for a great cheap tra...

Re: Shimano Metanium MGL vs Chronarch MGL

Is it just me or does anyone else who has both feel like the Chronarch is actually smoother than the Metanium? Yes and no. I had two Met MGL's. Both XG's and both came from the Trap. One was smooth, quiet and a joy to fish. The other was geary, and didn't feel very well at all. Replacing both the p...

I've got two of them. An MBR and a JWR. Neither have caused me any issues.
